Walking and Geocaching - a perfect match!!
This will be a different type of geo-event. The focus of this event will be walking. The Geo-Walking event will take place in conjunction with the Greater Des Moines Volkssport club's annual Walk for Wildlife at Jester Park. At this event we will introduce geocachers to Volkssport, and we will introduce voksmarchers to the wonderful world of Geocaching!
The event will start at 8:00 am at Shelter #3 in Jester Park. Geocachers should arrive at 8:00, as temporary cache coordinates will be released at 8:30. Drawing for FTF honors and some door prizes will start at 8:15. Walkers (and geocachers) may start walking anytime between 8:00 and 11:00 am, being off the trail by 1:00 pm.
There are several permanent caches in Jester Park. For this event there will be a number of temporary caches hidden, along with a logger.
When you arrive at the event take some time to check the activities. The volkssporters would love to have you try a volksmarch. And, after loading your coordinates, you might partner with some walkers to teach them about geocacing. There will be GPSr's available for walkers and other newbies to check out.
Let's spread the love of geocaching while sharing in the joys of volksmarching!
